Access more possibilities with AP 8533. The AP 8533 has integrated three powerful sensors that optimize security, customer engagement and network performance.

  • 802.11 Wireless Sensor for Gap-free Security – Trust the AP 8533 to deliver best-in-class PCI compliance and security with AirDefense*. Unlike other sensors that scan only part-time, this dedicated, dual-band 802.11ac sensor scans for rogue devices full-time, eliminating the risk of being blindsided by them. Once a threat is detected, it is checked with an extensive security and network vulnerability signature database to proactively safeguard your network.
  • Two-in-One Bluetooth Sensor
    • For Security and Location Services: Monitor BT2.0 devices in the environment using the AP 8533 and ADSP Security Appliance. Map BT2.0 devices, and analyze for potential security threats.
    • Communicate With Every Customer: Due to its ubiquitous nature, Bluetooth is an excellent means to engage customers. The AP 8533 supports Apple iBeacon to communicate with a loyalty app on a customer’s smartphone. Using Google Eddystone, enterprises can send advertisements directly to shoppers, guests and conference attendees even without a loyalty app pre-installed. This makes it ideal for businesses to advertise their app download pages,
  • RF Spectrum Sensor – Maximize performance and visibility without compromise. Using the dedicated full-time RF spectrum sensor, you can monitor and identify RF interference without slowing down the throughput on the data radios.
